This was a good one, I remember loving the holiday house and wishing I could go somewhere as lovely... ahhh the joys of a DS novel!

I read this when I was in grad school far away from what had become my life. It was an easy, guilty pleasure read. And I very much enjoyed it :)

This was an objectively terrible book.

I'd never read a romance novel before and decided I might as well see what they're like. With as open a mind as I could manage, I started reading this and within 3 pages was considering setting it on fire. I persevered in order to give it a fair go but it continued to disappoint in monumental proportions.

The prose is bland, simplistic, and dry. The characters are undeveloped and lack depth to the point that by the end they were virtually interchangeable in t

I read this for the "holiday" prompt of the December mini-challenge. It was a bit of a relationship roller coaster, and I don't feel like any of the characters were really deep enough for me to be emotionally invested in what happened. ...more

If zero stars was an option, that is the rating I would have provided. I'm pretty sure this is just about the worst book I have ever read. Just awful. Please don't waste your time (not that it takes long to read). Just truly, truly terrible. I kept waiting for something to happen....anything!! I kept waiting for some character development, some plot twist...nope. This had no redeeming qualities at all. This was the first Danielle Steele novel I have ever read, and it will be the last. I have no ...more

Back when I decided to read this, it was to find out why Danielle Steele is such a high seller, and it was a short book.

Big mistake. It read more like the outline for a much longer book. Characters are not developed, and it suffers from a bad case of telling instead of showing. Definitely not a book worth reading.

If I could, I would give this book 2-1/2 stars. I'm a fan of Ms. Steel, but this was not her best work. There wasn't much of a plot, and a lot of the descriptions were very repetitious.

I wanted to like Diana, but she was portrayed as pretty unlikable, and that kept me from caring about what happened to her or her marriage. I found myself more sympathetic to her cheating husband, and I wish we had insight into their marriage other than it going from perfect and storybook to completely falling ap

I think this is the first novel I have read authored by Danielle Steel....hard to believe as she has written so many. The summary from the book describes it as heartbreaking yet sometimes funny. It is about forgiving without forgetting, the sorrow that shadows our lives, and the lifetime friendships that heal, sustain, and change us forever....well said!

Three couples: Eric and Diana, Robert and Anne, and John and Pascale decide to rent a home in St. Tropez for a month in the summer. They had tra

Probably more 2.5 stars but considering a couple factors I enjoyed it. Danielle Steele is very enjoyable for me because her writing is very descriptive and takes you to another place. You can really envision her characters and settings. Plus they are easy reads. Which while on the beach myself I really enjoyed this book because it did just that. Very descriptive that I could picture it, enough drama to keep me enthralled and it was a quick easy book I was able to finish in a day relaxing on the ...more

We all know Danielle Steel is a great author . Every book she writes is unique. This one was an eye opener because it made you think about life and how quickly things can drastically change in it. Some based on our decisions that we choose to make weather they are right or wrong and others that we have no control over. This book focuses on three couples and how their lives are effected by change and the choices they must make to either continue the path they were on or take a new one.

3.5 stars rounded up. A good story though not Steel's best. I love the friendship among the three couples although their obsession with wealth annoyed me some. I really liked Robert and Anne but thought the characters overall, other than Pascale and John were underdeveloped. One does get a good visual of the sunset over the water and I loved the character of Agathe and her poodles. Overall, a good book for summer but not a good deep read like I normally like to read from Steel. ...more

It's been a long time since I've read anything by this author. I'm so glad I have been reintroduced because I really enjoyed this heart warming story of three couples connecting on vacation. Two of the couples have been married for several years. The last, is a recent development. As the story progresses, we discover the problems they must overcome. I thoroughly enjoyed this light romance and plan to continue on with this author. ...more

“There was nothing in the world that appealed to her more than a month in the South of France...”’s st tropez. I’m not above picking a book for its title...Besides it’s the new year and the book starts New Year’s Eve as they are planning their holidays. Lacking some realism and repetitive in spots - but a light, easy, relatively happy read - perfect for vacation and keeping alive memories of a summer in St Tropez...

This is a very light beach read. No seriously developed people or plots. Just people who have their own problems as well as several good friends. Read it very quickly. Didn’t like that it was “large print” ... very distracting format. I’ll pretend any other Steel books in the future. If this is a normal format, I need a tad more from a book.

Although I was an avid DS fan while growing up, yet when reading this one , I didn't feel it's really constituted as a novel, the characters are so underdeveloped and superficial, I felt like DS would no longer be a reading option for me anymore ! ...more

This was a pleasant book. The plot wasn’t what I expected, so it was interesting. There was some repetition but wasn’t that noticeable. Also some situations were predictable, but still it was a pleasant book overall,

I enjoyed this book by Danielle Steel but as I was reading it, it almost felt rushed. I loved the characters Pascale, Diana and Gwen. This was a great story line and I wish it had lasted longer. This is a short book if your looking for something quick between books.

This was a very bland story. I skim read the book to see it unfolded and the book repeated the same thing over and over again just rephrase it. Was very disappointed since I love Danielle Steels work.

Bought this book in a local 2nd hand shop. Since I can’t travel due to COVID, I let the book transport me. Easy read if you’re looking for an escape. I finished it in one sitting on the patio with a summer beverage.

I just needed a quick read to get my year jump-started, and Sunset in St. Tropez by Danielle Steel was just that. Three couples who have been friends for many years are faced with many changes in their lives. The story is a fluffy one about the people living the good life. Typical Steel.
